Chianti Classico wine produced according to organic standards: here’s the Quercia al Poggio business card, the farm in the municipality of Barberino Val d’Elsa, 38,7 km from Florence. One hundred hectares of woods, vineyards and olive groves are part of the landscape surrounding the borough, 400 meters above sea level, in Monsanto town: all this brings you to the XIX century.
Up to 1997 the winery, active since 1969, belongs to the Rossi Family. Michela and Vittorio, the owners, renewed the firm respecting tradition. They replanted 15 hectares of vineyards, organised the wineries and introduced a medium sized woods selection to preserve Sangiovese and other native vines features.
The relaxed vintage atmosphere is still the same of the past.
Vineyards and olive trees are cultivated by biological techniques.
Quercia al Poggio produces Chianti Classico, Vin Santo and extra virgin olive oil.
